Why did Lord Irwin announced dominion status?

Dear student,

During 1928 , many events occurred in India like Simon Commission came with its idea of functioning the constitutional system of India .
It was greeted with "Simon Go black" slogans as there was no Indian in it . This event outraged the Indians and once again strikes and hartals happened on the streets with killing of hundreds of people.
In order to make everything normal, and to cool down the Indians
Viceroy Lord Irwin announced an uncertain offer of dominion status in October 1929 with a chance to participate in Second Round table conference to talk about the future constitution of India.

Hope this answers your question
